Power over Ethernet (PoE) supports low voltage technologies like LED lighting systems, sensors, and HVAC controllers that have become standard in today’s commercial office building. PoE power devices (PD) draw less power than legacy devices, and because they are smart, they can turn off and on automatically. PoE energy
Because Power over Ethernet (PoE) Powered Devices (PD) show up in user-facing smart-building deployments, they are ideal for collecting data. Moreover, the points where they are positioned and the kinds of data they collect make them extremely useful in the Machine-Learning (ML) space. In fact, you could say ML and PoE
If there’s a lesson to be learned from being stuck at home during COVID, and struggling to get things done at home that might have taken seconds in the office, it’s this–the agile workplace wins. Workplace agility is nothing new, but developing it has taken on a new urgency. Essential workers with the good fortune to be able to work, needed to socially distance literally overnight. The
In this blog Versa Technology is circling back on a previous post, Adjustable LED Lighting: Revolutionizing Workspace Design, to share insight on several developments taking place in the research of light and its effects on health and productivity. Light frequencies can be harnessed to mirror those found in nature.
Silicon Labs, an Austin based provider of silicon, software, and smart solutions, recently announced the release of a new line of integrated circuits (IC) that provide up to 90W per port of Power over Ethernet (PoE)
The term “utility” has expanded to include not only electricity (& gas), water & sewer systems and communications services, but a hybrid of data and power transmission for low voltage devices. That’s because daily life has become more connected and more reliant upon data. With the IoT, things like Alexa, smart blinds, security camera systems, and so much more must be accessible to
Every few years, California releases its updated regulations on Title 20 and 24 for building energy efficiency for residential and nonresidential structures. These standards are helping occupants achieve lighting energy efficiency and savings. Though effective, these regulations are somewhat complicated to wade through. This post will endeavor to unpack the broader aspects of the latest version
There’s a lot of interest in building renovation and urban renewal in 2020. You only need to turn on your television to witness this significant and expanding market trend in action. Historic preservation is great for television ratings. It’s even greater for real estate developers, urban planners and local residents. In 1976, the federal government recognized the need to preserve our
